Sharlyn - 08/18/2020

El Paso Community College is the best place to start. For my first semester there, I experienced how college functions. I enjoyed that they made an event for anybody to learn. As well as activities to have fun and distress. The professors can know you personally, and it is easier to communicate with them.

El Paso Community College is where students come together as one to succeed and prosper with each other. The professor's at every campus are dedicated to their job and have a genuine interest in educating their students. Fortunately for the students, we have faculty members that are willing to help us or direct us in the right direction. Our tutoring services are phenomenal. Have a paper you need looked over?

  8. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I tell my friends that this school will get your feet off the ground first and then little by little you learn more in the teaching ways the instructor or professor is teaching you about. The program that I am in is Culinary Arts and Related Sciences which will teach some of the basics we're use to at home but later in the program it gives you more advanced teaching for those who want to work in the food industry or learn more baout cooking or baking.
